RIVERVIEW, Fla. — Carnivals and sideshow acts have been around for decades, but the history behind how they started and have they’ve changed is an interesting one.
The International Independent Showmen’s Museum will take you back to the days of the earliest carnivals across the globe.
The curator of the International Showmen’s Museum, Doc Rivera, says he’s organized the thousands of antique carnival pieces, many of them coming from carnivals from around the world.
The bright lights and sounds of carnival games and rides are sure to bring back memories for anyone who’s ever been to dazzling carnival shows.
The museum is open Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
